Charges of sexual harassment at Comic-Con in San Diego this weekend. Criticism of sexy characters who some believe objectify women. Can women be sexy and not be disrespectful to all women? What is the greatest example of the objectification of women? Are sensuous female characters degrading to women? ALSO: Have you noticed that New Orleans is suddenly becoming a hot city for concerts? Big and small - more concerts are making New Orleans a must stop on their tours. Why? What was the last concert you went to and what concert do you have tickets for?
A tweet about a United Airlines gate agent refusing to allow 3 girls, one 10, to board a flight wearing leggings exploded on social media and is now a mainstream media controversy. The girls were flying on a pass from a United Airlines employee and the dress code for “pass travelers” is stricter than other passengers. Do you consider leggings inappropriate?
Do you think the extremes are destroying their positions or do you applaud them for their unrelenting positions?
The extremes represented by The Freedom Caucus in Washington, D.C. and Take ‘Em Down NOLA may be destroying their own positions.
President Donald Trump and GOP leaders pulled their "Obamacare" repeal bill off the House floor Friday after it became clear the measure would fail badly. Does this reflect badly on the Republicans?

Over fifty people were taken to private custody and there Keith -- concert Saturday night in a suburb of Boston. 46 were treated for alcohol related illnesses 22 were taken to nearby hospitals a Mansfield county leaders said. Then they have a growing problem now with younger rowdy country music fans. They use alcohol. And they're going not just for the music that means that's it's kind of secondary they're actually going to party. And that tends to get out of control and a fire fire chief said that they were totally outnumbered. And it was just something that overwhelms them and it I mean is this it is this a growing trend. Is that a growing trended to see people totally out of control with concerts and he did you notice when you go to concerts do you notice. The people I -- they're always going to be people lot of control. And really interesting thing is for fruit for all those who were so opposed to the legalization of pot. I've never seen anybody on pot at a concert. Who is out of control. And they all seemed to be relatively calm. They don't seem to be troublemakers. The people that I tend to see causing trouble but the people who were doing other drugs not pot. Org or drinking too much. And and as I mentioned in the the parents' room upstairs in the parish hall. There's there's there's no alcohol served at all either downstairs or upstairs at house of blues when it's all -- show. And the concerts over this this weekend with MK TO and action item. This was -- only to show but there was a parent's room upstairs next door. Where you can drink and smoke and and see the entire concert this week and an era poster teenagers that orchard hang out with them. So it's a chance for you to be there but there on the -- at the concerts which we kind of -- and ideal situation. But there was one mother who. She had to be on more than just alcohol she had to be something else. And she passed out. Which throwing out lying down I'm thinking Jimi Hendrix. A girl foreigners and I immediately -- to get help. And my girlfriend -- her to her sister when I came back we're we're trying to get her up and literally. Trying to keep her talking. Keep for a week keeper focused her eyes were rolling back in her hand me I was really a very very traumatic scene. And the staff at house of blues to a phenomenal job of taking care of this woman with. With wet towels in in keeping her -- writing keep -- moving overseas she's not leaning back I really applaud the house of -- staff because. Is concerts still going on. And they've got to things to do but they they have enough staff members to just stop and -- ticker this woman until the EMS workers gain the second thing is is this woman's. This woman's teenaged daughter was in the crowd. And we all were worried about her now we have heard that. She had arrived home this woman was drinking and maybe doing other stuff she wasn't driving. -- I would assume that the that teenager had a phone -- they'll do. And she would be able to be in touch with the people who were were picking her up to I mean people were overly upset about this this woman's daughter. But it was it was good did everybody a took care of the for a few people that didn't move in and sometimes people don't know what to do. When something really bad happened something dramatic happens people don't know what to do. And they just kind of sit back and they're they're kind of frozen too -- -- people are embarrassed a goal -- in and try and help. So I was really proud that the people I was with a win over immediately. Tried to help this woman. A safe -- to their suspend action item and era a new young band has the look on the sound that it is is very reflective of the music that is defining this decade. And what thing I noticed about this band and actually talk to one of the guys about it after the show. Is that they have a very positive message in many of their shocks like the grand American -- best day of my life. -- like imagine -- a lot of positive music he says is reflecting a new generation. And to me that tells me that there's an -- young generation coming of age. That has a very positive outlook on life. Despite the world we're given. And so I think that's really good thing here's part of a song will be fine but he spent her last night's action item. And they're popular with kids but there's no reason why disband you know shouldn't get a listen from those of us who were part of the baby boomer generation or or other generations. On this is about. And I am hearing a lot about this in music today will be fine and so we're gonna be okay. I mean the world is the way it is but if you just keep trying and and in a lot of the stuff that I here's if you apply yourself. If you just believe in you work hard. You will succeed but here's part of the song will be fine by action item. Today that's a great message give a little more give a little more than you did before. And will be fine.

Rowdy or crowds that are going to country music concerts going fours according to them going secondary secondly for the music and -- going to party. It. People going to party -- then. While that's what I'm getting from. The articles that I read about their subpoena wasn't Ayers so I'll -- I don't know when. That's why over we're talking about this tonight if anybody's gone to you know with the big. The big country music fest in Baton Rouge or any other than any other concerts or festival was do you notice that players are younger rowdy crowd.

A -- a receipt -- seventy I know a lot of people in my generation bash. All the new stuff out today it's not nearly as good as the past and they. Talk about the negative influence of music and but there's a lot of negative stuff in music. But this is one of the band's American authors and also -- house -- -- recently. And I thought they had really positive stuff and Derrek and that reflects a new young generation and to me some this music reminds me of kind of an eighty sound. -- -- Jack and -- kind of thing I don't reminds me of the eighties. Coming up after this break or play another another section of another song from action item. And younger and that's another new young band with a very positive message does this mean to the young generation is positive about the future of America. And when I'm hearing is a lot of talk about personal responsibility. And continuing to try heart. This is -- show and we'll be right back on WL. And welcome back to the -- show and its Monday night to get agree weekend as a cold front moving through this series are -- really cool things off but it's gonna make things a little drier tomorrow. I think there's still a 30% chance of rain tonight then. It's going to be drive -- a chance of rain toward the end of the week here's an update on tonight's -- bureau pretty general opinion -- since it spreads about 120 of the bacteria. Should the -- -- replace the attention. Right now 46%. Say no but a majority 54% say yes. And I'm with the majority on this would give a sure opinion by going to our web site of the WL to icon here a couple of quick text about the fist pump I'm with you why he's shaking hands. I don't know where those fans have been I fist bump -- every one is a way of saying hi. Here's a text that really does reflect the hate that exists in America. Since the fist bump is a favorite of Obama but I will immediately. Stop doing it. So. Your -- for president. Is so strong. That that would change your personal activity. Because he does something that other people to I just again I think that speaks volumes of hate that some people have for President Obama. Power play another another part of of the song from this this new band action item I don't know if they're gonna become a big band or not. But they have the potential effect. The lead singer kind of reminds me of of a young. That is not as talented yet but reminds me of a young Adam Levine from Maroon 5 I'm thinking this is how Maroon 5 start. But I'm hearing a lot of positive stuff in music today. And they were to house of blues last night with MKT if KTO. And here's part of a song called brave. And again I love the message in the song when. It's all about not giving up its its. It's almost I don't know whether they're doing it consciously or subconsciously but there's almost this message. That reflects a young generation to -- it's like. We know the world is messed up. You know we know that there are a lot of problems we know that players debt we know that we're gonna have student most would organ -- all kinds of problems. But if we just keep trying it in if we do our best. Then we will succeed and I love that song -- and again I think we should be really excited that there's a young generation that has such a positive view. Of the future. I made a mistake earlier sort of a Steely Dan at the you know like for an arena -- it was sold out I missed it but I've had called earlier from supporters it was phenomenal. A -- -- Clinton is gonna be at the singer Friday night. And I believe there about only 100 tickets left for that -- New Orleans is a big concert destination this is the -- Schilling will be right back.
